"Tough Cookies" by Edward Crosby Wells -- February 17-18, 2013
Actor - Katherine Filer
Katherine Filer has been a self-employed network consultant for more than 25 years and recently a life coach, macrobiotic cook and an author of "The Merman and the Butterfly". In 1990, she founded the Tri-County Fluency Group, a support group for people who stutter. This group later evolved into the South Jersey Chapter of the National Stuttering Association (NSA).
Katherine leads workshops for the NSA and is an Introduction Leader for Landmark Education. She is debuting as an actress in the play, "Tough Cookies" with a cast of all people who stutter and is excited about this opportunity. Being an actress was the one thing she was sure she never wanted, sure was never possible, sure she could never do and sure she could never be! She cannot wait to share this opportunity with other people who stutter.
Katherine is on the board of directors of Theatre for Transformation and Together We Act. These are two non-profit organizations that are very important to her. She has devoted her life to empowering others to have their voice heard and listened to powerfully.
